Beautiful Paper Reliefs That Form Intricate Mandalas by Jacky Cheng

We learned a great deal about Australian paper relief artist Jacky Cheng in our past interview, from how she learned joss paper folding from her grandma to her idea of the greatest invention ever made. Her works are nothing short of breathtaking and utilize meticulous care in their creation. Multiple layers are carefully cut and placed on top of one another and sometimes folded and interlocked to reveal gorgeous mandalas.

I can’t believe that some of these works only measure to roughly 9in by 9in! Jacky’s exploration of folding techniques in her latest series captures more geometric elements than before. The simple folds bend inward on one another creating a beautiful woven lattice.

Her use of the curved layers almost feel like waves, gradually moving your eye inward or outward. Upon looking closely you can see all of the finer details down to the slightest strokes of watercolor added as a final touch.
